102 Not Out: Amitabh Bachchan And Rishi Kapoor Reunite As 102 And 75 Year Olds

The first look of the comedy drama, 102 Not Out, was released by the makers a while back and it went viral the moment it surfaced on the net. The most interesting feature of the film is that Big B will be seen as a 102-year-old man while Rishi will be seen as his 75-year-old son in this one.

Thanks to Umesh Shukla, the two stalwarts will be reuniting on the silver screen after 26 years as a father-son duo for 102 Not Out. The film is based on a Gujarati play of the same name by Soumya Joshi. 

A report on Mumbai Mirror quoted the film's director, Umesh, as saying - "Amitji and Rishiji are collaborating after 26 years. They are playing Gujarati characters for the first time. Being a Gujarati myself, I had certain references in my mind which we used to create their look. The film went on floors on Wednesday as they shot Big B’s introductory scene. The cast and crew will be shooting for the film all over Mumbai till May end and directly resume in July."

He continued in the same vein - "I had produced the original play and knew it could be turned into a film for its unique plot and humor. Saumya has written the film brilliantly,“ said Umesh. He also revealed that the actors haven’t seen the original play and we doubt they intend to. Since they both play Gujjus in the film, a few lines in the said language is a given. They are already good with the language and have a tutor on the set to guide them. All of us are having a blast."

They wish to wrap the film by July end but only time will tell if they will be able to meet the scheduled deadline. As more details about the project are bound to unfold with time, keep watching this space for more! Till then, happy Follo-ing!
